How to use a function to repeat a set of procedures on specific set of columns in a data frame?

Below is my data frame:

sample_data
# A tibble: 10 x 7
      REVENUEID AMOUNT  YEAR REPORT_CODE PAYMENT_METHOD INBOUND_CHANNEL  AMOUNT_CAT
          <chr>  <dbl> <chr>       <chr>          <chr>           <chr>      <fctr>

Here is my code:

MOUNT_CAT<- sample_data %>% group_by(AMOUNT_CAT,YEAR) %>% summarize(num=n(),total=sum(AMOUNT)) %>% rename(REPORT_VALUE=AMOUNT_CAT) %>% mutate(REPORT_CATEGORY="AMOUNT_CAT")
INBOUND_CHANNEL<- sample_data %>% group_by(INBOUND_CHANNEL,YEAR) %>% summarize(num=n(),total=sum(AMOUNT)) %>% rename(REPORT_VALUE=INBOUND_CHANNEL) %>% mutate(REPORT_CATEGORY="INBOUND_CHANNEL")
PAYMENT_METHOD<- sample_data %>% group_by(PAYMENT_METHOD,YEAR) %>% summarize(num=n(),total=sum(AMOUNT)) %>% rename(REPORT_VALUE=PAYMENT_METHOD) %>% mutate(REPORT_CATEGORY="PAYMENT_METHOD")
REPORT_CODE<- sample_data %>% group_by(REPORT_CODE,YEAR) %>% summarize(num=n(),total=sum(AMOUNT)) %>% rename(REPORT_VALUE=REPORT_CODE) %>% mutate(REPORT_CATEGORY="REPORT_CODE")
final_product<-bind_rows(REPORT_CODE,PAYMENT_METHOD,INBOUND_CHANNEL,AMOUNT_CAT)

Here is the final product of that code:

final_product
        # A tibble: 27 x 5
        # Groups:   REPORT_VALUE [16]
           REPORT_CATEGORY REPORT_VALUE  YEAR   num total

                 <chr>        <chr> <chr> <int> <dbl>
     1     REPORT_CODE            J  FY14     1    25
     2     REPORT_CODE            Q  FY16     1     1
     3     REPORT_CODE            Q  FY17     1   100
     4     REPORT_CODE            R  FY17     1    50
     5     REPORT_CODE            R  FY18     2    75
     6     REPORT_CODE            S  FY17     2   400
     7     REPORT_CODE            S  FY18     2   530
     8  PAYMENT_METHOD        Check  FY14     1    25
     9  PAYMENT_METHOD        Check  FY17     1    50
    10  PAYMENT_METHOD        Check  FY18     2    55
    # ... with 17 more rows

This is my attempt to condense the code to make it more efficient. (This code doesn't work):

cat.list <- c("REPORT_CODE","PAYMENT_METHOD","INBOUND_CHANNEL","AMOUNT_CAT")
repeat_procs <- lapply(cat.list, function(x) x <- sample_data %>% group_by(x,YEAR) %>% summarize(num=n(),total=sum(AMOUNT)) %>% rename(REPORT_VALUE=x) %>% mutate(REPORT_CATEGORY="x")

Can someone please tell me how to write "more efficient" code that doesn't repeat that often?

You can parse the strings to symbols. Also, your cat.list is already a string vector, so there is no need to add double quotes around x in mutate.

Below is the code you can refer to:

library(dplyr)
library(rlang)
cat.list <- c("REPORT_CODE","PAYMENT_METHOD","INBOUND_CHANNEL","AMOUNT_CAT")
repeat_procs <- lapply(cat.list, function(x){
  final_data <- sample_data %>% 
    group_by(!!sym(x), YEAR) %>% 
    summarize(num=n(),total=sum(AMOUNT)) %>% 
    rename(REPORT_VALUE=!!sym(x)) %>% 
    mutate(REPORT_CATEGORY=x)
}) %>%
  bind_rows()

Result would be as follows:

> repeat_procs
# A tibble: 27 x 5
# Groups:   REPORT_VALUE [16]
   REPORT_VALUE   YEAR   num total REPORT_CATEGORY
          <chr> <fctr> <int> <int>           <chr>
 1            J   FY14     1    25     REPORT_CODE
 2            Q   FY16     1     1     REPORT_CODE
 3            Q   FY17     1   100     REPORT_CODE
 4            R   FY17     1    50     REPORT_CODE
 5            R   FY18     2    75     REPORT_CODE
 6            S   FY17     2   400     REPORT_CODE
 7            S   FY18     2   530     REPORT_CODE
 8        Check   FY14     1    25  PAYMENT_METHOD
 9        Check   FY17     1    50  PAYMENT_METHOD
10        Check   FY18     2    55  PAYMENT_METHOD
# ... with 17 more rows
